hold assad accountable. >> two nights ago president obama directly addressed the american people. now vladimir putin is doing the same thing. in a "new york times" op-ed written by the russian president he questions america's role as a superpower writing "it is alarming that military intervention in internal conflicts in foreign countries has become commonplace for the united states. is it in america's long-term interest, i doubt it. millions around the world increasingly see america not as a model of democracy but as relying solely on brute force, cobbling coalitions together under the slogan, you're either with us or against us." putin went on to say a strike would destabilize the middle east and openly mocked the president's closing remarks that america is exceptional. a white house official responded to the op-ed saying, president putin has invested his
credibility in transferring assad's chemical weaponses to international control and ultimately destroying them. the world will note whether russia can follow through on that commitment." it's being reported the cia has begun delivering weapons to the syrian opposition. you know, one of the concerns in syria is that al qaeda is sending recruits into the country to join the fight. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel spoke to one of these fighters with the agreement we would not show his face. "if muslims are pressed and cannot defend themself, we have to support them." >> the united states is considering launching military strikes against syria. would that help you?

i've done to vincent and his family. >> ironically despite that promise matthew cordle pleaded not guilty in a surprise courtroom maneuver. it allows him to get a new judge. the first judge is trying to game the system because of comments she made about his sentencing. he faces between two to 8 1/2 years in prison. his defense team says he will change his plea to guilty when the next judge is assigned to the case. yahoo! ceo marissa mayer opened up about its battle against nsa snooping. at a conference in san francisco here's her response when asked what would happen if the company did not cooperate with government requests? >> when you lose so we fought, we lost, if you don't comply, it's treason. we review it, scrutinize it, push back on a lot of requests from local government. we push back on requests in
terms of the nsa. >> like a lot of other companies yahoo! is requesting more transparency from the u.s. government. now let's go to business stories here. later this morning we get a better look at the labor market with the weekly unemployment report. yesterday wall street closed mixed actually. the dow up 135 points. the s&p was up. but the nasdaq was negative. you might ask why. apple was down 5%, a major, major drag on the nasdaq. also verizon sold $49 billion worth of corporate debt yesterday. that's a record for the bond market. the move was part of the company's effort to finance a $130 billion buy-out of vodafone so they can take full ownership of verizon wireless and new analysis finds matching pay to performance is working. they exceeded goals more often than not and performance based stocks made up 27% of ceo compensation last year. finally the extra cost of flying, well, it's adding up.
